Hi Helenm,


My name is Lisa and I am one of the specialist nurses working here at Pancreatic Cancer UK.  I hope that someone from the wider Forum family feels they can share their thoughts on your question.  It is something that we have been asked over the phone on the Support Line on several occasions.

Apologies for the rather 'standard' answer!  But I would normally advise you discuss this with your oncologist if the person in question is receiving chemotherapy.  They won't throw you out of their clinic room for bringing up the topic, and I am quite sure they will have also been asked this many times before and be able to answer your questions. 


With best wishes,



Specialist Nurse
